Cambodia Highlights

CAMBODIA | Saturday, 10 May 2008 | Views [1247]

Patti:We are now on day 4 in Cambodia. We arrived in Phnom Penh and our tuk tuk ride to our hotel was chaotic, to say the least. It was a mosh pit of cars, bikes, tuk tuks, scooters, and pedestrians with no apparently rules of the road. Traffic lights ... Read more >
